2009; Fan and Rowson 2000a). The optimum pH for the flotation was located between 6 and 7. The results indicated that after the oxidation roasting up to 600 °C, the flotation behavior of ilmenite was greatly improved across a wide pH range. The maximum increase in ilmenite flotation recovery was about 50% at pH values ranging from 4.0 to 4.5.
In this study, the surface chemistry of monazite in terms of zeta potential, adsorption density, and flotation response by microflotation using octanohydroxamic acid is determined. Apatite, ilmenite, quartz, rutile, and zircon are minerals that frequently occur with monazite among other minerals.
OF MONAZITE FROM ZIRCON BY FLOTATION 119 and the collector used. The selectivity increases markedly in the order : alkyl sulphate, amine, soap flotation. The relatively low pH of the isoelectric point of zircon and the extremely low pH of the zero charge of silicon sites impede the adsorption of S2- and SH- ions on the surface of zircon.

In reverse flotation, proper reagents induce the pay minerals to become hydrophobic (water repelling) and the waste minerals to become hydrophilic (water attracting). Aeration is added through spargers at the bottom of the flotation cell. The bubbles attract and then float the waste minerals, leaving the pay minerals in the underflow.
An example of such a placer rutile-zircon-ilmenite deposits is at Eneabba on Australia's west coast north of Perth, which produced about 2,500 t of monazite annually, with monazite making up 0.5% to 7.0% of the heavy minerals. Present-day production is from India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Brazil.
ilmenite and often monazite are found in Australia, USA, India and Africa. These deposits ... the effect of pH on ilmenite flotation from a sand deposit using alkyl sulphate collector. Acid pretreatment of the ore before flotation had a positive effect on ilmenite flotation. Figure 25.3 …
The flotation reagents can be added in a feed-forward fashion based on the plant raw coal tonnage. Automatic feedback control of the flotation reagent addition rates has been lacking due to the unavailability of sensors for determining the quality of the froth cell tailings. Expensive nuclear-based sensors have been tried with limited success.
3. Results and discussions 3.1. Flotation of bastnaesite and monazite The effect of pH on the flotability of single particles of both bastnaesite and monazite using benzoic acid as a collector in the presence and absence of potassium alum is shown in Fig. 1.

Ph.D. Natalia Petrovskaya . No comments: ... Typically, the composition of sand is very simple and consists of five minerals: monazite, ilmenite, rutile, zircon, quarz. Placer deposits contain 0.8-15% of heavy minerals. ... These flotation reagents can replace the polymers in the plants of the Americas SOLUTION 9. The flotation of iron minerals.
For all subsequent flotation tests, collector concentrations which gave approximately 90% recovery at pH 7.0 were used, i.e 3 x 10 -5 M and 5 x 10 -6 M respectively for monazite and xenotime. The effect of solution pH values was also investigated for flotation times ranging from 10 seconds to 3 minutes.
Jan 15, 2018· The IEPs of dolomite and monazite both occur at pH around 5. This suggests that well-chosen chemisorbing flotation reagents are necessary to separate this two minerals in a mixed flotation system. In this study, the zeta potential measurements after addition of collectors have indicated significant collector adsorption at certain pH conditions.

US5106489A Zircon-rutile-ilmenite froth flotation process . This invention relates to a method for recovering a bulk concentrate of zircon and a bulk concentrate of rutile-ilmenite from dry plant tailings. A process has been discovered for froth flotation by manipulating the surface charges of dry plant tailings.
Handbook of Flotation Reagents: Chemistry, Theory and Practice: Flotation of Gold, PGM and Oxide Minerals, Volume 2 focuses on the theory, practice, and chemistry of flotation of gold, platinum group minerals (PGMs), and the major oxide minerals, along with rare earths.
This is accomplished in general by the use of a two-stage flotation process in which a portion of the silicates and silica are removed by flotation with a cationic type of reagent after which the ilmenite is concentrated by flotation with an anionic type of reagent.
Jan 26, 2017· In this study, the surface chemistry of monazite in terms of zeta potential, adsorption density, and flotation responses using octanohydroxamic acid is determined. Apatite, ilmenite, quartz, rutile, and zircon are the minerals that frequently occur with monazite, and hence they were chosen as gangue minerals in this study.
Reagents are mainly used for treating the surface of ores and/or for improving conditions of operations for increasing flotation separation efficiency. Reagents can impact the pulp chemistry and make flotation a complex system involving the interaction of all additives (including collectors, depressants, activators, pH regulators, and frothers).
